Overabundance of peaches!

I spent a gorgeous afternoon at a U-Pick peach farm and find myself with 16lbs of peaches. My DH and DD made a delicious peach pie (flavoured with almond and nutmeg). Next I plan on making some cobbler, grilled peaches and peach salsa. Any other ideas?
Thanks CHers!

  1. -Peach preserves/jelly,
    -This sangria recipe I found looks good,
    -Peach bread pudding,
    Peach ice cream
    Roast Chicken Salad With Peaches, Goat Cheese, and Pecans (this looks yummy, I think I will have to try it),

    Have fun!

    1. I have recommended this tart before, even fairly recently (hey, it's peach sason); if you like almonds, this is a simple-to-make, fabulous dessert (with a homemade crust, preferably), as peach and almond flavors are great together. I don't bother peeling the peaches, as they're raw.

            LOL! i can honestly say that's the first time anyone's ever said that to me, Linda :)

        1. If you have freezer space, set up a cobbler or deep-dish peach pie for next January. Mix your sliced peaches with sugar and a little flour and a teaspoon of Fruit Fresh so they don't turn brown. Line your baking dish with a plastic bag, pour in the peaches, and freeze. Then remove the whole thing, wrap some more, and put it back in the freezer. When you want it, it will already fit the baking dish and you can just add topping or a crust.

          1. Thanks for all the suggestions and I will do a thorough search before adding a new post! The roast chicken salad with peaches sounds amazing. And I'll definitely freeze a pie/tart or 2 for a taste of summer in the middle of winter.

              you can freeze some of the peaches by themselves too, in case you want to use them in a sauce or roast them as a side for a meat dish.
